Tyga For DuJour Magazine 6

Rapper Tyga opens up his house to DuJour magazine for a photo editorial featuring naked mannequins and designer clothes.

The lyrical rapper appears in the issue sporting his newly-dyed blonde hair, a lot of diamonds and pieces from designer labels including a Saint Laurent jacket, Billy LA jacket, Givenchy shirt and studded jeans, Saint Laurent, collar shirt, pants and shoes, Alexander Wang coat and shirt, Prada turtleneck, and Standard by Karolyn tee-shirt.

Tyga‘s high-fashion spread was styled by Leah Adicoff and Karolyn Pho; Carlos Eric Lopez photographed the shoot.

Inside, he talks to writers Jessica Morgan and Heather Cocks about privacy, being a hungry kid from Compton and Garderna, having faith in music, his creativity, his hustle, valuing his recent proximity to Kanye West and more.

On privacy:

“I only like people to know what I want them to know,” Tyga says. “People didn’t know what Tupac was doing. That’s why he was so iconic. Before [the Internet], it was real superstars.” He pauses. “I don’t engage with people that much. You can’t base your life off waking up every morning like, ‘What are people saying about me now?’ Then I’d never stay in my creative headspace,” he says. “I just want to put all my answers in the music.”

On being a hungry kid from Compton and Gardena, obtaining success and having faith in music:

“I’ve been this person for so long now—half my life,” he says, as if to shrug off his “Before” phase. “I had faith that music would be able to take me somewhere. I didn’t know where. I just was like, ‘Keep having faith, and any doors that open, I’ll walk through them and see what happens from there.’”

On creativity:

“I only have so much creative energy. I have to decide what to devote it to,” he says. “You should try to master one thing first, instead of juggling.”

On his hustle:

“You gotta hustle, whatever you do,” he says. “Everything takes time. We’re all human, so things are always going to get to you. If we were robots it’d be easy to shut it off, you know what I mean? When you got faith in something, you just gotta go with it.”

On valuing his recent proximity to Kanye West:

“You learn something by just having a conversation with him. And he listens, and that’s the thing I do,” he says. “I listen to everybody and then I take it and put my own thought on it. That’s just how life is. God puts us in places. It’s for you to make the decision whether you go left or right.”
